The Keynote Speaker for this year's 15th Annual Symposium is Dr. Sharon L. Hillier, Ph.D., a microbiologist whose research has focused on understanding both the preventive and causative roles that certain microorganisms in the vagina have with respect to genital tract infections, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV; and on the evaluation of topical microbicides for prevention of STIs. At the University of Pittsburgh, Dr. Hillier is the Richard Sweet Professor of Reproductive Infectious Disease and vice chair for faculty affairs in the department of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences.
